Amazing Ammaji Ananda; 3rd Place AG in Her First Ever Tri = Interview!

Joy gives a much needed hug to Dewachen moment’s after crossing the Finish Line during yesterday’s “Tri The Rim” triathlon…it was Joy’s first tri ever and her first competition as a mother…and she podium’d! Joy prepared mentally using my Pre-Event Meditation for the week leading up to the race. During the race, she used the the HP Yoga™ PROP WORKOUT mantra; “hum SAH!” to get her through her weakest event; the run. Whenever we apply our minds to confront and transform our weaker areas, therein lies the hidden, sacred kingdom of Wholeness! I grabbed that ever-involved with her baby girl new triathlete and coaxed a few words from her today…enjoy and be inspired by our First Lady of WF once again!!! Congratulations, baby!

crust

Also known to us Northern Tribal Warriors as, “The Full Crust Moon” now radiant in Father Sky – is a not only a surging of spring energy, it also marks the beginning of at least one month of fantastic ‘crust skiing’ whereupon we nordic skaters can glide endlessly at mach speeds across a frozen canvas of withering snows…each undulation of Mother Earth’s hide creates BMX type of rolls and jumps! What SACRED FUN! Ilg so pities the sport-specific athletes who remain numb to the ever dancing glow of wholistic sport endeavor! Since yogis are a Solar-Lunar Tribe, here is more on March’s Full Moon:

This is exactly what a Private Intensive with me is supposed to do – take you into the real texture of a chi-full life…Shishya IC, straight from NYC to Durango for three days; one of which he spent with me. The other two days he spent wisely: chillin’ within the Pranic Potency of Durango as to increase his acclaimed musicianship! i cannot express how important it is for ALL WF fans and students to sign up for at least one WF Private Intensive per year…even if you do a WF Half-Day Training Camps with me and just do like Student IC did and hang in the absolute wonder-land of my hOMetown; your Practice will deepen by lifetimes…as IC found out last Saturday…c’mon…i’ll give you a few snapshots of IC’s Intensive which included snowshoeing, meditation, yoga, and Dharmic Transmission all along the way…

final Race Report From Chi-filled Chama:  3 Medals in 2 Days…a Super Sacred Sweat!

Remind me again why the hell i should NOT raise my daughter to be a nordic ski racer? futilely yet steadfastly chasing last year’s champion, Clay Moseley – a world class cyclist – during last Sunday’s 10k Chama Ski Classic. elevation; close to 10,000’. remember, this the day AFTER racing a 15k Freestyle race at the same elevation! as you can see, i’ve at least manufactured a big gap between myself and third place…more importantly, i’m trying to put seconds between myself and anyone else in the King Of The Mountain (KOM) competition which goes to the fastest Classic 10k skier and 5k Snowshoer…as you’ll soon read, i would lose my KOM title by 40 seconds. photo by Pat Hogan.
